Biography

  • Birth: Harold J Hermans was born on August 1, 1920.
  • Death: He died on April 19, 2013, at age 92.
  • Note: Hermans, Harold J.

    With faith in the resurrection of Jesus, we offer our prayers for Harold "Harry" Hermans, lifelong resident of Green Bay, who entered eternal life Friday evening, April 19, 2013. He was 92.

    People who met Harry spoke of him as one of the kindest and selfless men they have ever met. Words he used to describe others that could easily be turned around toward him such as, "peach of a guy," and "scholar and a gentleman."

    He was preceded in death by the love of his life, Ellen (Carew) Hermans, his wife of 67 years. Often noted as being adorable together, perfect strangers had paid Harry and Ellen's dinner bill at a restaurant simply because they saw the caring interaction between Ellen and Harry.

    Born August 1, 1920, Harry was a 1938 graduate of St. Norbert High School and veteran of World War II, serving in the Army Air Corp in Hobbs, N.M. Upon returning to Green Bay, he served in the U.S. Postal Service, then the Brown County Library until his retirement in 1989. He was a long time member at St. Patrick's parish and most recently attended St. Willebrord Catholic Church.

    Harry enjoyed time outdoors and earned his Eagle Scout in the Nicolet Council of the Boy Scouts of America. In Scouting he was the Order of the Arrow Chief of the Black Diamond and first Lodge Chief of Chequah Lodge. He spent time at Lake Noquebay and Grindle Lake.

    In October 2012, he had taken part in the Old Glory Honor Flight Mission 16 to Washington D.C., where he and other World War II veterans received a tour of the Washington war memorials and were thanked for their service.

    A self-taught handyman, Harry and Ellen built their family's cottage on the Little Wolf River in Waupaca County.

    Harry is survived by his two sons, Michael and Patrick (Belinda); four grandchildren, Sean (Jill), Colleen, Zachary (Becky) and Amanda Beguhn (Clint); four great-grandchildren; a brother, Vincent "Vin" (Doris) Hermans; a brother-in-law, Tom Hogan; a sister-in-law, Mercedes Hermans; a brother-in-law, Garret (Ruth) Carew; a sister-in-law, Kay Abel; and many nieces, nephews and friends.

    He was preceded in death by his wife, Ellen; three brothers, Leo, Frank (Geri), and infant, Joseph; two sisters, Mary and Evelyn (Eddie).

    Friends may call at St. Willebrord Catholic Church, 209 S. Adam St., in the Fr. Ken DeGroot Center from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. Tuesday. The Mass of Christian Burial will be at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday at the church with Rev. Andrew G. Cribben, O.Praem officiating. Burial will be in Old Sacred Heart Cemetery, Manawa. Blaney Funeral Home is assisting the family. To send online condolences, please go to www.BlaneyFuneralHome.com.

    Born April 1, 1926, Vince graduated from Central High School on D-Day, June 6, 1944. Soon after graduation he served in the U.S. Army in the Pacific Theater as part of the Army Corps of Engineers, helping to build roads and bridges in the island of Okinawa. This past April he was able to take part in the Old Glory Honor Flight Mission to Washington, D.C., where he and other veterans visited the World War II Memorial and were honored for their service.

    After returning from the war he graduated from St. Norbert College with a business degree and later passed the CPA exam. Vince worked for the IRS for 18 years before pursuing a career in public accounting, first joining Jack Robishaw and upon Jack's retirement became partner in the firm McComb, Uphill, & Hermans CPA's. After the firm merged with a regional CPA firm, Vince decided to go into business for himself, forming the firm of Hermans & Associates, CPA's, S.C. on January 3, 1983.

    Vince was preceded in death by his one and only love, Doris (Delfosse) Hermans, his wife of 60 years, whom he married on February 14, 1953 at St. Francis Xavier Cathedral. Vince and Doris loved spending time with their children and grandchildren, especially their time together at the cabin in Crandon, Wisconsin where he loved to go sailing, swimming, fishing, or just relaxing with his family and friends on the porch overlooking peaceful Ground Hemlock Lake. He was very involved in his children's lives and was always there to support them in their many activities, which carried over to his grandchildren's activities as well. Vince was also very devoted to his siblings, and for many years met with his brothers, sisters, and spouses for Wednesday morning breakfast at the Holiday Inn River Room.

    Vince is survived by one daughter and son-in-law Kathy and John Messerschmidt, Green Bay; two sons and daughters-in-law Kevin and Susan Hermans, Green Bay; Matt and Debbie Hermans, Saukville; 9 grandchildren Kyle Hermans, Andrew, Matthew, Michael and Nicholas Messerschmidt, Amanda and Kailyn Hermans, Celeste and Hunter Hermans, 1 sister-in-law Mercedes Hermans.

    We know Vince is resting with the Lord with a smile on his face as he is now reunited with his wife, Doris and their son Brian, who he has missed dearly for 13 years. He will be lovingly remembered and greatly missed by his family and friends.
